Today I'm sharing a card I made for my friend Marge's birthday. I had it made many weeks early, but didn't want to show you until she had received it. This one is called a double twisted easel. The first card I'm showing here was one I made for my classes to construct. The one below is Marge's card.
So, here is the card closed, as you open the envelope and pull it out.
To make this card, you cut your cardstock 5.5 x 8.5”. On the long edge of the CS, (starting left to right), score at 4.25” and 5.75”. On SHORT side, cut in at 2.75” until you get to the 5.75” score line. Then score from the inside end of that cut to the outside corners of the front (see sample). Fold and glue down the section closest to the card fold line---that part will not open when the card is "opened." Decorate the card as desired. It probablly sounds complicated with these instructions, but just look at the card and I think you can figure it out. Have fun!
Come to visit again soon!
